Publisher's Summary

There's no police training stronger than a cop's instinct. Faith Mitchell's mother isn't answering her phone. Her front door is open. There's a bloodstain above the knob. Her infant daughter is hidden in a shed behind the house. All that the Georgia Bureau of Investigations taught Faith Mitchell goes out the window when she charges into her mother's house, gun drawn. She sees a man dead in the laundry room. She sees a hostage situation in the bedroom. What she doesn't see is her mother. When the hostage situation turns deadly, Faith is left with too many questions, not enough answers. To find her mother, she'll need the help of her partner, Will Trent, and they'll both need the help of trauma doctor Sara Linton. But Faith isn't just a cop anymore--she's a witness. She's also a suspect. The thin blue line hides police corruption, bribery, even murder. Faith will have to go up against the people she respects the most in order to find her mother and bring the truth to light--or bury it forever.

Karin Slaughter's most exhilarating novel yet is a thrilling journey through the heart and soul, where the personal and the criminal collide, and conflicted loyalties threaten to destroy reputations and ruin lives. It is the work of a master of the thriller at the top of her game, and a whirlwind of unrelenting suspense.

Suspenseful and Thought Provoking

Karin Slaughter sheds light on diabetes (without being fat!), pregnancy, and adoption. Jealousy over rides thankfulness and wrecks havoc in many people's lives. This is a good book to read. For best enjoyment, I recommend reading Slaughter's earlier books that lead up to this one. If this is not possible, then it is still okay...Slaughter keeps the new reader enlightened without the previous readers feeling things are being repeated to death. She is an excellent writer.

A good story--but not my genre

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was a satisfactory listen and the storyline was interesting.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The combination of murder mystery and romance novel probably works for many readers. I am not a romance-novel reader.

How could the performance have been better?

It was well written and will probably well-received by those who enjoy romance.

Do you think Fallen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Ask someone who reads romance novels.

Any additional comments?

I think the book was well written and has a good storyline. I think the author has written a story she can be proud of. I just don't care for romance novels. I wish there was a way for Audible to post whether a book is a romance novel, juvenile novel, young adult novel, etc. It would help me with my selections.

Badly written with ridiculous gratuitous violence

Hard to know what is the the weakest point of this book . The weak, implausible plot? The embarrassing clicheed dialogue? The disgusting gratuitous violence meant to make a weak novel "gritty" and "real". I got through the audiobook because I paid for it but it was bad.

This only ok for me

This isn't her best work, perhaps it s because it's one of her earlier books. Sara didn't seem as sharp and together as I've come to expect. The story line seemed slow and didn't keep me engaged My favorite narrator is Kathleen Early, this narrator wasn't t as strong.

Loved it overall, but a couple strange holes

I fell in love with Amanda Wagner in this book. She's so funny and witty. I laughed out loud at multiple lines of hers. Especially when she said that thing about Will having too many bi**hes in his life and shes not going anywhere. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† But I was irritated with how Jeremy was portrayed. Why did the narrator make it sound like he's a kindergartener? Also, I know its not in his character, but I keep really wanting Will to be a man to Sara. Kiss her like you mean it Will! He should've kissed her at the end of the last book, and he should've made a big production out of it. I know this isn't a racey romance novel, but I wish we could've gotten a few more details about the first nights Will and Sara spent together. I was really looking forward too it and was pretty let down.

What I think of Karin Slaughter

I Love Karin Slaughter. She is the kind of writer that keeps you interested , and not want to put the book down. Although I have only listened to the Will Trent series, I would suggest it to all her Fans and any new person looking for good book !!
The book that I just finished..... " FALLEN " I promise, u will not be able to walk away , It is that GOOD !! I hope the series will go on and on....ha ha. The person that read the book was good too. Her name is Shannon Cochran. She is really good. I was able to keep up with what was going on, and she did a great job keeping the characters separated with her voice ability. I HOPE you will give "Karin Slaughter" a chance. You won't regret it.

Unpredicatable

What made the experience of listening to Fallen the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the story line. Happy to have the characters develop and get involved in their lives. I could not figure out the "who did it" until the end. Perfect!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fallen?

Will and Sarah

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

She over enunciated and it got on my nerves

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Faith's fear for her son.

Can't stand the narrator

Love Karin slaughter but this narrator is hard to listen to. Horrible character voices. They sound like cartoon characters.
